An Expedition to Zambia with us is:
You will find your own magnificent self and learn to give voice to the power of love through daily classes and activities as part of our exclusive “Knowing Love Works” curriculum.
You will work side by side with our Zambian staff, play with and mentor children, and serve people of all ages in a variety of locations.
Your senses will be enlivened by the Zambian culture through home visits, drumming, dancing, singing, delicious food, and a trip to an artisan market.
Safe for the whole family
We’ve had the whole spectrum from 8 to 78 years old and often have whole families join us for the experience.

The Project Fees cover all food, lodging, transport, and other costs related to the experience. In addition, $1,000 of the program fee goes directly to fund the Children’s Resource Center (CRC) which you will become very familiar with while in Zambia.
These fees do not include flights or leisure travel which vary significantly in cost. We tell all our volunteers plan on the cost of the full experience to fall between $5,000 and $6,000.
Don’t have that much cash sitting in your bank account? Don’t worry!
There are options!
About 70% of our volunteers raise money to help them cover the cost of the trip
